The five of you have been summoned to Ravengro by Kendra, the daughter of the late Professor Petros Lorrimor.  It is sad news: Professor Lorrimor is dead.  He had few friends in life, but counted each of you among them for various reasons.  You have been tasked with the honor of acting as pall bearers for the Professor's funeral.  You luckily all arrived around the same time, and were whisked to the Restlands (Ravengro's cemetery) immediately by a messenger boy.  You see Kendra as you arrive at the entrance.  She silently nods her head to you as a group.  As you get closer, you can clearly see her cheeks stained by tears and dust, and her sad eyes puffy and swollen from her sorrow.  She waves you each to your position on the coffin.  A sixth person joins you from the small crowd gathered in the cemetery.  She is a middle-aged human female who gives you a light appreciative smile as she takes up the rear left position.


You hoist up the coffin, and slowly proceed along The Dreamwake, led by Kendra Lorrimor, with the other attendees walking in step behind you, about 20 feet back.


As you turn right onto The Eversleep, you spot some potential trouble...

(OOC) I'm going to number each sentence below.  If you want to jump in and do anything before the full speech plays out, indicate at which number you want to do or say something...


As you turn onto The Eversleep, you notice the way is blocked by a group of a dozen surly looking locals.  The lead tough is an elderly but wiry human man.  Once they notice you, he steps forward and speaks.


1. "That's far enough."

2. "We've been talking, and we don't want Lorrimor buried in the Restlands."

3. "You can take him upriver and bury him there if you want, but he ain't goin' in the ground here!"

4.  Kendra is swift to respond, her sadness swiftly transforming into anger. "What are you talking about, Gibs?" She cries out.

5.  "I arranged it with Father Grimburrow."
6.  "He's waiting for us!"
7.  "The grave's already been..."

8.  Gibs continues... "You don't get it woman!"
9.  "We won't have a necromancer buried in the same place as our kin."
10.  "I suggest you move out while you still can."
11.  "Folks are pretty upset about this right now."

12.  Kendra, infuriated, interjects "Necromancy? Are you really that ignorant?"

"Fall Silent Boy"  The elf said, his eyes narrowing on the elderly human. "If you believe the professor dabbled in necromancy you are a fool, and that you would halt the young lady in her burying her father, marks you a knave, now begone" (intimidate +3=13)

Intimidate was an interesting choice.  Your result was not high enough to scare them off.

Of the twelve, six sense trouble is about to break out, so they turn around to leave.

The other six brandish fists, clubs, saps, and slowly advance toward the party.

Gibs smiles: 
"I'm going to enjoy teaching you pointy-ears a lesson (he spits) and showing you some of our Ravengro hospitality."


Roll initiative: No surprise round.  You have your gear and armor on (since you luckily just arrived), but each of you has two hands holding up the coffin, so your weapons are sheathed/hung/strapped, etc.

Nisha nods in agreement "Our friend is showing his grief in his way. Let us pass without trouble as this is a day for grieving not arguing. I am certain the Professor was no necromancer. As certain as I am of my friend, Eran." As she speaks his name Eran pokes his head and claws out of her cloak briefly



(Diplomacy: 20; Initiative: 16 Nisha is not inclined to start fights)

(OOC since we had two successful diplomacy checks, and Zak was one of them, who originally acted before Saneriean, I'm going to have them supersede the failed Intimidate check).


One of the locals, a farmer with a rake in one hand, turns to Gibs, "See. I told you he was no Neck-Ro-mmmanncer. Let's go back to town and I'll buy you an ale. Let Kendra bury her dad in peace."


Gibs looks into the faces of the rest of his group, who have all sized you up and feel like they couldn't take you anyway, and Gibs senses they'd all rather be drinking, too. He turns back to you.

"Fine. But this isn't over. We'll keep our eyes on you. Do your business and go whence you came, if you know what's good for you." He spits, turns, nods to his men, and they leave.

      He was a leftover from a group of pathfinder mini's I primed but forgot to finish from my last posting.

      This is the Bones version of the iconic character, painted in a rather quick and dirty fashion. There was a lot of metal and chain mail, which I did not spend time on, and a few details which I picked out.  In retrospect I could have brightened up the armor some, but since she's likely to go on the table as a generic fighter I didn't feel the need to make her special.

      Hello again, this one is Darkblade, a Wizkids Pathfinder Deep Cuts 72596, Human Male Fighter. Darkblade is also a the character of one of the players of our D&D group. I painted it with Reaper MSP paint.

      Here's a few of the 3d printed characters from the crowdfunded project by Kazrak Studio.  They were done in resin, and have some very fine details. 
      John H. Damon, who likes to read old books written in strange languages: 

      Dr Weird Psychic, a student of the mystic arts who needs no introduction:

      Laura Craft, field archaeologist and explorer:

      And dear Dr Home, the brilliant surgeon with a lousy bedside manner: 

      All are presented on bases from Secret Weapon.

      How long has it been since I started a show off thread???? Too long. I have missed everyone and hope to get back to at least a semi regular amount of posts. Figured I’d start with a Reaper mini. For the forum peeps that attended ReaperCon 2019 you may have seen my version of Derek’s beautiful sculpt O-Sayumi or affectionately named Akiko. I had a great time painting this lovely lady. Since I didn’t complete her until Thursday night of the con I didn’t get any photos until last week. Two years to take pics and post them up, not bad huh? 
      I missed ReaperCon and all of you. I have been enjoying seeing the pics shared here. So here is to a year of painting more minis and bringing them to Texas in 2022. 
      Now without further ado, Akiko.
